Charged with breaking into the house of Mr Edmund Smith in the parish of Newchurch, Isle of Wight, during divine service on 2oth inst., and stealing three sovereigns, two half sovereigns, ten shillings, and six pence in silver; with the proceeds he purchased a watch and a guard-chain. Also charged with stealing a waistcoat.
There were previous convictions and, “as a light sentence appeared to haveso little effect in deterring him, they should now deal with him more severely”
